Countdown to Christmas 2021 #5

It’s time for project 5 in my Countdown to Christmas 2021 series and I’ve created this poinsettia Christmas Card.

Many of you will know that I love a poinsettia project for Christmas.

In fact, it has become tradition that there is a poinsettia project at my annual Special Christmas Cards Class.

This card uses a traditional Real Red and Old Olive colour combination.

For the background, I’ve used a Blending Brush to create a red area behind the poinsettia.

A couple of lengths of the pretty Gold Shimmer ribbon create the present effect. This then has a tag cut from the Tailor Made Tags dies, stamped with a sentiment from the Penguin Place Stamp Set. It’s attached at the outer end using Dimensionals.

The Poinsettia Dies provide the focal piece. These pieces are layered together in an offset way. Using Tear & Tape, this is stuck to the project.

Finally, a touch of Wink of Stella and a sequin from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack add some sparkle to the centre.
